Thanks to Benjamin Trimboli we have our first solo transcription of a Paul Nedzela solo. Paul is the baritone saxophonist with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and recently released his debut album. The solo is on “Strange Bedfellows“, one of Paul’s tunes that uses the chord changes from the popular Benny Golson song, “Stablemates“. This transcription is from that album, so head on over to the transcriptions page and check it out!
We have a new Leo Parker solo on TCTB, as well as new Gary Smulyan solo on “Jahbero” from his album Hidden Treasures – A contra-fact on the changes to “All The Things You Are”. And another Smulyan solo with the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, on the tune “Dameron”, a contra-fact using the chord changes from “Giant Steps”. Thank you Leon Williams!
From Orlando Cialli we received the complete set of solos from Gerry Mulligan on his “What Is There To Say?” album. That’s a lot of work! Its a great album so check it out.
Head over to the transcription page to grab a download of these!
We are well over 100 transcriptions and approaching 300,000 downloads! Thank you everyone!
We’ve had a number of transcription submissions in the last couple weeks!
Matthew Karnstedt has sent us a new Gerry Mulligan Transcription from a solo on ‘Take The A Train’ and another Pepper Adams solo on ‘Alone Together’. Fans of Pepper should note that we now have two different solos transcribed from him on Alone Together, comparing the two could be very interesting! Thank you Matthew!
The next set of transcriptions come to us from Evan Smith. In addition to a new Serge Chaloff transcription on ‘All The Things You Are’, I’m very glad to say that we now have not one, but three Pat Patrick solo transcriptions!
Pat Patrick was a great baritonist, best known for his amazing work with Sun Ra, but also an accomplished straight ahead player. Interestingly Pat Patrick is the father of Deval Patrick the former Govorner of Massachusets and presidential candidate. Deval donated Harry Carney’s last horn to the Berklee School of Music, presumably through his father – read more about that story here.
Other wise, head on over to the transcription repository and check these new solos out!
3 new Pepper Adams transcriptions have been posted, “Down Tempo”, “Soulful Kiddy”, and “Sudwest Funk”. We also have our very first Scott Robinson solo, on the “Remembering” movement of Bob Brookmeyer’s Celebration suite – originally written for Gerry Mulligan. Head over to the Transcription page to check all of these out!
A big thank you to Ryan Middagh for sending these transcriptions over.
We added some new interesting videos to our videos page, and if you haven’t been here in a while check out the transcriptions page, a few new ones there too! Aaron LIngton’s transcription of Pepper Adams‘ solo on Bossallegro is in the lead with 50 downloads!
